A MAN has been charged in connection with a burglary in Bolton.

Police were called to Dingle Walk, Halliwell, to reports of a break in at a flat on June 27 last year.

Following the incident, CCTV images were released of a man police wanted to speak to as part of a social media appeal.

The man was identified and circulated as a wanted person.

Yesterday, officers in Birkenhead, Merseyside, arrested a 47-year-old man and he was brought to Manchester to be dealt with by Greater Manchester Police.

Officers confirmed last night he had been charged with residential burglary.

He was remanded in police custody to appear before Magistrates' this morning.
